Ryan Watson ’22 is a Physical Sciences & Secondary Education major with an Environmental Science focus from Glenburn, Maine. Inspired by his own teachers, he is training to be a STEM teacher to help students discover knowledge and skills at their own speed. “I want to be able to inspire students to reach their potential focusing on what they can accomplish, and not comparing themselves to their peers, the way my high school chemistry teacher inspired me.” With the GFSTM Noyce program, Ryan is most looking forward to the national conferences and workshops on STEM & Secondary Education that will allow him to gain different experiences in the classroom and introduce him to new ideas. At Saint Joseph’s College, he had the opportunity to go on the Geology trip to visit the Grand Canyon, Death Valley, and more. As a member of the college swim team, he also hopes to share his love of the sport with students.
